"The strange thing about Tiramisu is that I’m not a coffee person, and I’m definatley not a ‘let is set in the fridge overnight’ person either which a lot of Tiramisu recipes call for. If you’re going to put any effort into making a silky, chocolate based dessert the last thing you want to do is clingfilm it up and put it in the fridge for 8 hours…while you munch on some fruit."
So here’s a quick, easy recipe that you can do just before dinner and have ready and waiting for you when you finish. If you don’t like chocolate orange…don’t add the orange!
Whisk the mascarpone, vanilla and irish cream with 80ml of the espresso until smooth.
In a separate bowl whisk the cream and icing sugar together then fold it into the mascarpone mix.
Quickly dip the sponge fingers into the espresso and use them to line your serving bowls. Spoon in the mascarpone mix then stick them in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Grate the dark chocolate over each bowl, dust with cocoa (I use a sieve) and then grate the orange peel over to finish.
Serve! And take all the credit for making a delicious, flavour infused Tiramisu in under an hour.
